Copic Colour Challenge #25

Oh, what a palaver I have had this morning.....! I was super organised this week and made my DT card for Copic Colour Challenge at the weekend. It was all made, photographed, enhanced, watermarked and completely ready to go. Safe in this knowledge, I sat down this morning to write-up this weeks CCC blog entry and had a bit of a surprise.... my fellow DT-ers cards all looked drastically different to mine. A little confused, I logged in to our little 'behind the scenes' forum, and quickly realised that I had in fact been a little over eager and had used the colours for NEXT week, THIS week! Doh! What then followed was a bit of frantic card making, just with the RIGHT colours this time! Oh well, at least I am now a week ahead of myself ;o)
It doesn't show up very well, but you might notice that I inked up the corners of my image, whilst it was still in the Nestie. It's a technique that I've been meaning to try for ages and one which I've seen on quite a few of my fave US blogs. It is also my attempt at trying to convince myself that I don't technically need a Copic airbrush system.....! Needless to say it looks better in real life but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

Goodie List........
'Lattebella' by Stamping Bella.
Paper: 'Urban Prairie' by Basic Grey, Core'dination CS, Bazzill 'Kraft' CS.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versamagic 'Aspen Mist' & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities.

Ali has designated this 'Crafting Day' and is occupying himself all day so that I can play with my lovely craft goodies to my hearts content! So, I'm gonna dash now as that is certainly an offer that I cannot refuse!

Fab card Stacey. You wouldn't know it was done in a rush. Like the effect of inking up while still in the die, very effective. Hope you have enjoyed your crafting day.

Super duper card and just as effective as the airbrush system; which is getting dusty on my shelf at the mo :( Off tomorrow tho', so I might squeeze in some more practice then.

Back to the grindstone on Monday? Boooo!
